Original, 1929, stone lithograph, linen backed, NITROLIAN "Sec Ausitot Peint" The message, so splendidly illustrated, is loud and clear. This paint dries in a flash! One of Cappiello's most popular designs.
"Watching paint dry" may epitomize unbearable boredom; but with Cappiello's image of crimson paint being applied a mere step ahead of advancing fee, he makes it clear in a flash that Nitrolian paint is dry in a flash and ready for business. (Ref PAI XLII, p 168)
